The Burdett Trust for Nursing is an independent charitable trust named after Sir Henry Burdett KCB, the founder of the Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses (RNPFN). The Trust was set up in 2002 in recognition of the foundation, philosophy and structure of the RNPFN.
The Burdett Trust for Nursing was established with the following charitable objects: to promote and advance education, research and training within the nursing and other healthcare professions for the benefit of the public and to promote public awareness of nursing and health issues; provide for the relief of hardship and mental or physical ill-health among nurses and other health-care professionals, and their dependants; and promote and advance the provision of nursing and other health services for the benefit of the public.
Tracey Warren funded by FoNS and Burdett Trust for Nursing has led her team at Nottingham University Hospitals to develop and launch the campaign “Mealtimes Matter” to promote nutritional care. We are delighted to announce that Tracey has won a British Journal of Nursing 2013 Award for this work.
The Burdett Trust is pleased to announce its new grant programme entitled 'Delivering Dignity through Empowered Leadership'. Details about the programme and how to apply are available on the 'What we do' page of this website.
